between giving someone the task of implementing and enforcing a law and giving someone else the task of coming up with policy. either policy as embodied in the code of federal regulations or policy as embodied the exercise of pure discretion that will evolve and over time become its own form of law. and so this law, much like the affordability -- the affordable care act, involves hundreds and hundreds of instances of delegated policymaking authority. one of the problems with that is that when you delegate policymaking authority to the executive branch, to the executive branch, the regulatory state, so to peek, you give it to people however well intentioned, however well educated, however wise, about are not themselves elected by the people. they themselves don't stand accountable to the people at regular intervals. and they themselves can act in much the same way as despots might have centuries ago. sure, their actions could be subject to challenge in court under the administrative procedures act, but you challenge them in court under a standard that is very deferential and

court struck down an arizona law that requires voters to show, quote, documentary proof of citizenship. the decision written by justice antonin scalia read this way . . . the decision broke down in a rare 7-2 split with justices clarence thomas and samuel alito the only decenters. it upheld the national voter's right statute. it allows citizens to register to vote simply by checking a box saying they are u.s. citizens when getting a driver's license. the people of arizona passed the bill into law kicking off a round of laws around the country intended to limit access to the polls, which is what makes today's ruling so very important. the arizona law was used as model legislation by the american legislative exchange council or alex who then pedalled it to other states. as of today these laws have essentially been ruled unconstitutional. more than a dozen states have pending legislation to restrict rights in many different ways, including moving up registration for voters the deadlines for that eliminating election-day registration and limiting early voting. we'll

partnership in south florida with local law enforcement who had gone into schools talking about bullying, including cyber bullying and giving people concrete examples of things of situations they saw, it was remarkable. and that is why we will continue to do that work. so i hope today as we move forward you will understand that we are in this together with you at the department of justice. this is an all hands on deck enterprise. there is so much to do. i hope at the end of this day we will indeed all follow the lead of that student, walk out and say what are one or two things i'm going to do differently and better? how are we going to improve this situation? i hope if you take one and only one thing from melinda and my and ruslyn's remarks today, if you have an idea, please bring them to us. we want to learn from you. we are in this together and i want to say thank you because the most important thing we have is a recognition that you understand that this is indeed a national issue for us to deal with. i'm looking forward to the rest of the day, i appreciate your presence and i

's law in honor of her, she had been in and around sacramento for a long time. so the legislation in and of itself, i don't think it's going to work miracles, but it is definitely on people's radar now and i think you hear it in the media more and more. the reason we have a suicide barrier and the reason we are having legislation like this is because of the parents and the families because they are the ones that hurt the most and i would imagine part of the therapeutic thing, you've got to tell this story and telling it in the right place and the right time can be very effective. so seth's law does require that if you witness an act of bullying, that you must report it. >> is that for anybody? >> anyone, but particularly teachers. there is a -- sometimes we see things that aren't very pleasant and if you've ever taken it to muni, you know what i mean. your tendency is to turn away. i heard the word faggot on the play ground when i taught. the teachers were intimidated, they didn't want to be seen to have any empathy because that might reflect on them. it's crazy but that's p

on the subsidized stafford loans? >> by law they go to 6.8%. >> we have the current policy debate during the fiscal cliff. other current policy still would go up there. would it be a good idea to increase the rates? >> we are splitting hairs. the law says on july 1 they go to 6.8%. the law already has the non- subsidized stafford rates. we are bringing those down because we combined them. since most students who have the subsidized stafford loans also have the unsubsidized loans. they are bringing this down as well. we think the long-term solution, using the market, not having this kind of political debate every year or two is the right way to go. even those who are proposing doing this for two years recognize that we're going to have another political debate in two years or they will have to have a long-term solution. we put forward one that is good and solid. the president put one for that also ties to the market. the ingredients are there to be able to come together and i are out what ever the deficit might be. >> do you have any sympathies for democrats, tom harkin of iowa? he was making commen
